Bloomberg Lab

The Bloomberg Lab at Brandeis International Business School (IBS) gives students access to a world-renowned financial, regulatory and market database that is used by virtually all of the major financial firms and organizations around the globe.

     


Using Bloomberg resources, students are able to store, crunch and analyze information about a comprehensive list of companies while, from the very same screen, teleconferencing with peers and monitoring the changing economic relationships between currencies and countries. For careers in professional mutual funds, hedge funds, private partnerships, insurance companies, banks, and other financial institutions, exposure to Bloomberg software is an absolute pre-requisite.

Through the lab, students gain exceptional quantitative skills, extensive experience with global financial modeling and a well-packed analytic toolkit. They graduate with the ability to interpret and translate hard data in meaningful ways.

Our Bloomberg Lab is the largest in Greater Boston, containing 11 Bloomberg Terminal Computers (10 for general use and 1 for instructor/training purposes).  Each computer has a dual monitor with various software packages:

  • Bloomberg
  • STATA
  • Microsoft Office
  • Endnote
  • Excel/Endnote Bloomberg Plugins

The Bloomberg Lab is available to members of the Brandeis community, often used by faculty for coursework and classroom learning. This lab is located on the bottom level of Lemberg Academic Center by the rear entrance.
